zoq on Freenode:) nice idea
rcurtin on Freenodeawesome, I will merge then since it has two approvals
rcurtin on Freenodebut I didn't want to jump into a PR I was not involved with :)
metahost on FreenodeI have seen CNE and DE optimizers available for non-differentiable functions
zoq on Freenodemetahost: Absolutely, already looked into NSGA-II but haven't had the time yet to work on an implementation.
rcurtin on Freenodein fact maybe I should open some issues for, e.g., extending simulated annealing to categorical functions
rcurtin on FreenodeI met with an old mlpack contributor recently; he's connected to people doing the IBM LALE auto-ML project, and they had interest in wrapping mlpack and also using ensmallen for hyperparameter optimization
rcurtin on Freenodeso perhaps there could be a lot of momentum for categorical function optimization
rcurtin on Freenodeor at least that's something I've always found exciting :)

vansika_ on FreenodeI want to contribute
vansika_ on FreenodeWhere can I start?
vansika_ on FreenodeAny beginner issue or stuff?
vansika__ on Freenodezoq: I m a beginner in cpp, can/should I still contribute?
zoq on Freenodevansika__: We heavily use C++ templates, so it would be useful to know some concepts e.g. templates, but as long as you are willing to learn those things I think you are ready to go.
vansika__ on Freenodezoq: Yeah, willing to learn :) It's good to start then.
vansika__ on FreenodeThanks for the links :)
zoq on FreenodeHappy to help.
zoq on Freenodercurtin: Sounds good.
MRINAL123 on Freenodelets introduce ourselves
metahost on FreenodeWill I go ahead and them then?
metahost on Freenode(for ensmallen)

rcurtin on Freenodemetahost: that sounds like a nice idea! I assume it was you who just opened #148? I'll take a look when I have a moment :)
zoq on Freenodekhizirsiddiqui: Have you tested: inputs.slice(0).rows(...)?
rcurtin on Freenodethat said, slice() should work on an arma::cube
